Bodegas Breca Rose 21
|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
This year, especially this summer, Rosé from Europe has been an exercise in better late than never. Typically, most European Rosé arrives in late March or early April -- this year, not so much. Since all of my orders of Rosé have arrived later in the year, I prefer to look at it this way -- instead of running out early, there'll be plenty of great Rosés to last through the winter!
Bodegas Breca is a personal project of Spanish Importer Jorge Ordonez, founded in the village of Mundobriga in 2005. The estate's vineyards are nestled in the high-altitude valleys between the Sierra de Pardos and the Sierra de Pena Blanca Mountains. The estate farms 265 hectares of old-vine Garnacha vineyards situated high on the hillsides, from 950m to 1000m above sea level. The vineyards were planted between 1925 and 1968, and production is split between Red and Rosé.
In your glass, you'll find this lively Spanish Pink similar to Rosé from the south of France. It's all about fresh strawberry and red berry on the nose and palate, and a perfect balance of brightness keeps the finish dry and clean.

(6/13/2022) "The 2021 Breca Ros reminds me of a solid rose from Bandol with its richer yet still fresh, mineral-laced style. Medium-bodied aromas and flavors of dried strawberries, orange blossom, spice, and some chalky minerality all define the nose, and it brings plenty of fruit and texture while staying balanced and clean, with a dry finish. It's perfect for the dinner table and best drunk over the summer and months."
